Soul Bowl Sound Therapy was founded in 2014 by Harry Parkinson. Using sound and vibration as a non-invasive, non-pharmacological method of promoting health and wellbeing, he hopes to introduce sound as a viable complimentary treatment to more people. He offers both private one-to-one sound therapy sessions and also group sound baths in the Dublin and Wicklow areas. For our live night, Harry is going to give a talk and demonstration on the healing power of sounds using crystal bowls. Sit back and let the soothing waves wash over you!
Television arm-wrestling with Real Estate and the The Byrds. With a dash of Gram Parsons, a pinch of 'Tusk'-era Fleetwood Mac and a dollop of 'Station To Station'-era Bowie! Consisting of Elton Mullally (Bass & Backing Vocals), Keith Moss (Lead Vocals & Guitars), Paul Shanahan (Drums & Backing Vocals) and Martin Moran (Guitars), their debut single Fat Men Have To Eat was recorded with Ingmar Kiang (Suede, Julian Cope) and released by legendary record label Reekus Records. Named as one of the highlights of the 2014 Ones To Watch festival and chosen for both the 2014 Youbloom and Galway Fringe festivals, they are about to release their debut EP of acoustic recordings, the result of sessions with Gerry Horan (Cat Dowling, Alphastates). Having recently performed a rapturously-received set at Dublin's prestigious Nighthawks event they are currently working on an EP of electric recordings with Ger McDonnell (U2, Manic Street Preachers, Martha Wainwright).
